Flabellina bilas Gosliner & Willan, 1991

Flabellina bilas is known in the Marshalls from four specimens found at Kwajalein. All were on the leeward seaward reef at depths of 15 to 40 meters, two during the day and two at night.

The closeup below shows the flattened cephalic tentacles.

Unnoticed when the picture was taken was the tiny unidentified eolid just above the Flabellina. The resolution in the inset closeup is not quite clear enough to positively identify it.
